Are you looking for information on the Beachbody Coaching business opportunity to help you decide if it’s something that is right for you?
If so, I think you’ll find this post helpful. In this post I will be going over 5 common Beachbody Coach misconceptions and you will probably find that what you thought about Beachbody Coaching and what it is, isn’t true at all.
In this post I’m going to be giving you the “dilly yo” and my goal is to provide with information to help you decide if Beachbody Coaching would be a good fit for you or not. I’m not here to “sell” you or try to convince you of anything. I’m not in the “convincing” business. I provide information, and if this is something you’re interested in and looking for, then great!…If not, no big deal…this isn’t something that is for everyone.
1. You do NOT have to be in perfect shape to be a Beachbody Coach.
Many people think that need to have an amazing transformation story and be in perfect shape in order to be a Beachbody Coach. This is not true. As long as you are currently using Beachbody products and working on improving your own health and fitness, you’re on the right track and qualified to inspire and motivate others. Often times we don’t realize that are own actions can be motivating and inspiring to others.
Another great reason to get signed up as a Beachbody Coach is to help hold yourself accountable. If you’re a Beachbody Coach, you want to be proof that the products work. You can be in the process of becoming your business’ best testimonial. You can be a walking billboard for your Beachbody business.
Don’t wait until you’ve reached your goal weight to become a Beachbody Coach. Get started ASAP, people will relate and follow you on your journey.
2. Beachbody Coaches are NOT experts on exercise and nutrition.
A big misconception many people have is that they think they need to be an expert on exercise and nutrition in order to be a Beachbody Coach. This is not true. Beachbody Coaches are not required to be certified in any way. They don’t provide tips or advice on form, or help people create meal plans. Beachbody has already done all of the hard work and created workout programs that come with meals plans, and that when followed like they are designed to be followed, will produce amazing results.
All Beachbody Coaches do is recommend a solution to people that are looking to lose weight or improve their health and fitness level. Don’t get me wrong, Beachbody Coaches do answer clients’ questions and help them select a workout program, but they do not instruct on proper form the same way a personal trainer would. The videos all do a great job of doing the explaining and instructing.
3. I don’t want to be a “pushy” salesperson.
Beachbody Coaches don’t “sell”, they recommend. Beachbody Coaches act more like consultants. They talk to people, find out their problems and/or goals. And if they can offer a solution to their problems, or help the other person reach their goals, they simply make a recommendation. The other person can take the recommendation, or not. No big deal either way.
Richard Bliss Brooke says it well in his book, The Four Year Career;
“…most people think they have to sell the product. It’s better to see yourself just recommending it, like you would a good movie or restaurant. You listen to the people around you … listen to their problems. And when someone shares a problem your product can solve, just tell them your story. Let them decide if it is right for them. If you recommend a great Italian place and the person says, “I don’t like Italian,” the conversation is probably over. If they say, “that place is too expensive,” you just let it go as their opinion. You don’t argue right? Don’t sell or argue with customers either. Just recommend it. If it is a fit, perfect. If not, let it go.”
4. I don’t have time to be a Beachbody Coach.
Many people are reluctant to sign up as a Beachbody Coach because they think they don’t have the time for it. The reality is that the time requirement is not as demanding as most people think. Just 1-2 hours devoted to your business a day is a huge a chunk of time and if I had to guess, is much more time than most Coaches are spending on their business. Many Coaches incorporate their business into their daily life by simply talking to people that they meet and bringing it up everyday conversation. Beachbody’s products are very easy to talk about and health and fitness seems to be a topic that always comes up.
5. Only the ones who “got in” early can make money.
This statement is not true and is a common misconception among people who don’t fully understand the networking marketing business model. The reality is, there are people that “got in early” when the opportunity first launched, yet those people never made a dime because they didn’t take action and do any work. And on the flip side, there are many others who have recently signed up and have built very successful businesses in a short amount of time. A Coach’s success has nothing to do with timing or positioning. A Coach’s success depends on their skills, abilities, and effort. It does not matter when you “got in”.
I hope this post answered some of your questions and gave you a better understanding of what Beachbody Coaching is and how it works. If still have questions, shoot me over and email and I’d be happy to answer them for you.
